But the rewriting needed for 3.0, porting to be GEGL ops, can be done
already now, and I would strongly encourage GIMP to make use of GEGL
ops more on an equal footing to GIMP plug-ins (and not be hidden in an
own menu under the GEGL tool like it is now) so that freshly developed
plug-ins can be done as GEGL ops already now and be more future proof.
